Good morning. Here’s the latest from around the lacrosse world:

1.  Chris Gray became the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Division I men’s lacrosse history, netting six points in North Carolina’s 19-11 loss to Duke on Sunday evening. Gray has 401 points, passing the mark of 400 set by Albany’s Lyle Thompson.

2. The bulk of conference tournament play is set for this week, and the Saint Joseph’s women’s lacrosse team gave us an early reminder of how special it can be. The Hawks knocked off George Washington, Richmond and UMass last week to win their first Atlantic 10 conference championship.

3. Those weren’t the only upsets happening. The Atlantic Coast Conference women’s tournament gave us two big ones with Notre Dame beating Duke and Virginia beating Syracuse. In the end, though, it will be the matchup we all expected with North Carolina and Boston College meeting for the championship next weekend.

4. No conference has been wilder this season than the men’s Ivy League, and the season ended with a three-way tie with Brown, Cornell and Yale sharing the league title.

5. Chris Sailer’s final season has been memorable, and on Saturday, the Tigers clinched a perfect Ivy League record for 2022.

6. It’s been a down season for the Loyola men, but are the Greyhounds ready to make a late run? Loyola knocked off Lehigh on Friday night to head into the Patriot League tournament on a high note.

7. The NFL draft started with former high school lacrosse player Aidan Hutchinson going No. 2 overall to the Detroit Lions, but the big excitement for the lacrosse community came when 2021 Tewaaraton winner Jared Bernhardt signed a free agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons.
